TUALATIN, Ore., April 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CUI Global, Inc. [NASDAQ:CUI] announced today that its wholly-owned United Kingdom ("UK") energy subsidiary, Orbital Gas Systems Ltd. ("Orbital"), has successfully delivered and commissioned its 16th and 17th "Bio-methane to Grid Systems" ("BMG Systems").
The orders, valued at approximately $1,500,000, included the design, build, installation and commissioning of BMG Systems for independent customers injecting gas into the Scotia Gas Networks ("SGN") and Northern Gas Networks ("NGN"). It is also the 6th and 7th such systems to be successfully commissioned (securing injection tariffs for the site owners) within the past 12 months.
SGN manages the network that distributes natural and green gas to 5.9 million homes and businesses across Scotland and the South of England. SGN's pipes deliver gas safely, reliably and efficiently to every one of its customers. While NGN delivers gas to 2.7 million homes and businesses in the North East, Northern Cumbria and much of Yorkshire. Further, NGN is installing more than 3,800 kilometers of new natural gas pipeline by 2021 and provides the region's rapid response service for customers who smell gas at home or work.
"I am delighted with our completion of yet another two sites, commissioned during the same period. This milestone positions us as a strategic leader in this industry sector and demonstrates our commitment to the renewable and novel gas markets over the coming years," commented Orbital's UK Managing Director, Richard Law.
Additionally, Orbital has secured orders for further BMG Systems, worth $1,800,000, with an anticipated option for an additional $600,000, to be delivered over the coming months.
"Our continued leadership in the delivery of Bio-methane to Grid Systems demonstrates the viability and value of our technologies and the professional abilities of our design engineers and other technical personnel," explained CUI Global's president & CEO, William Clough.
"As the world turns more and more to alternative fuel sources, our leadership in the design, manufacturing, delivery, and commissioning of these high-tech BMG Systems, including our proprietary GasPT and VE Technologies, will enhance our ability to penetrate both Western Europe and North America markets; further enhancing our profitability and shareholder value," Clough concluded.
